How Can We Help?
1008.1: James Rumsey Technical Institute Certificate
To be eligible for a certificate, James Rumsey Technical Institute secondary students must maintain a minimum of a “C” average for each required semester of their program and are limited to 10 absences (510 hours) each year, or 20 absences (1020 hours) in a two (2) year program. One and one-half (1-1/2) credits will be awarded per semester upon satisfactory completion of all program requirements (i.e. attendance and grades). The certificate is issued by the Administrative Council of James Rumsey Technical Institute and is presented to students during JRTI’s Certificate Ceremony.
1008.2: Governor’s Workforce Credential
The Governor’s Workforce Credential (GWC) signifies a student’s knowledge of business processes within a Simulated Workplace environment. The West Virginia Governor endorses only the top career technical education (CTE) completers in the state for their achievements in academics, attendance, industry certifications, technical training, drug testing and work readiness. James Rumsey Technical Institute administration and instructors will communicate the annual criteria to students.
